HARMAN’s AKG Relaunches Classic Project Studio Line Of Condenser Microphones – C4500 BC Broadcast Mic In Focus During IBC

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – Originally launched in 1993, HARMAN’s AKG C3000 condenser microphone brought a remarkable level of quality and performance to musicians and sound engineers with a foundation of audio perfection and reliability. With the C2000, C4000 and C4500 BC debuting in the following years, the Project Studio Line was born. Nearly 20 years later, AKG’s has relauched the Project Studio Line, with a cost-effective, aesthetically beautiful set of mics, channelling the popular characteristics it maintained in the ‘90s.

The revamped Project Studio Line’s C4500 BC is specially designed for on-air broadcast purposes. The mic is designed with cardioid pickup and offers legendary AKG sound quality thanks to its edge-terminated large diaphragm condenser capsule. The low proximity effect and the integrated multilayer pop-filter ensure best results even with lively speakers.

C4500 BC meets the strictest requirements of digital audio with its ultra-low 8dB-A self-noise and 145/165 dB SPL capacity. The mic’s acoustical design and front-end address allow for comfortable on-air broadcast work and easy positioning in front of instruments, including bass drums, upright bass, baritone sax or other high-output sources. C4500’s 3-stage filter and low up-close bass boost allow for close positioning to sources, accurately capturing target sound.

“AKG’s new Project Studio Line takes a fresh look at a technology that has stayed true to the audio industry for 20 years, which is testament to the quality and reliability of our world-leading microphones,” stated Thomas Stubics, product marketing manager, recording and broadcast, AKG. “The C4500 BC’s relaunch will offer a comfortable and reliable solution for any on-air micing or voice-over application with amazingly clear and high-quality results.”
